Chelsea’s 2015/2016 squad is starting to take shape, with both Falcao and Begovic now part of Jose Mourinho’s plans. With so many players on loan last season, the focus has been on who will make the cut after the summer, who will be sold and who will be loaned out again. A surprise to some is the possible return of Victor Moses, on loan at Stoke last season.
Chelsea signed Victor Moses from Wigan in 2012, after two successful seasons at the Greater Manchester club. Still just 24, Victor has a lot to give Chelsea, and his strength on the ball and impressive dribbling would be welcomed back at the Bridge. You might remember Victor scoring against Shakhtar Donetsk to win 3-2 in the dying minutes of a Champions League group game – a game that also saw two goals from current Blue, Willian. Believe it or not that was Victor’s only goal for Chelsea, in 23 appearances.
Failing in a bid for the youngster this week, Stoke Manager Mark Hughes has been quoted;
“It could be he plays a part for Chelsea this year,” said Hughes, who failed in a bid to keep the player.
“He showed enough in his time with us that it made Chelsea very aware of the talent they have.”
“I think they would possibly like to keep him although if they go into the market again, they could change that idea,” he said.
While I doubt Victor Moses would just walk back into the starting line up, it’s important to remember that only Eden Hazard seemed to have a guaranteed place among the three attackers behind Diego Costa. With a misfiring Cuadrado and Oscar, maybe there is a good chance for Victor to show what he can do? The next week will give us a lot of answers, with the possible signing of Pedro from Barcelona likely to lead to a flurry of Chelsea changes.
